Feeding Therapy for Children
Feeding therapy is a big help for babies and young children who have sensory issues with food, motor planning problems related to mouthing, chewing or swallowing, or who are transitioning to taking nourishment by nursing or eating. Pleasant mealtime social interactions can be reflected in therapy.

Reading and Literacy Skill Development - Review
Literacy Skill Development for Students with Special Learning Needs, by Leslie Broun and Patricia Oelwein, describes fun, effective strategies for teaching reading to students with different learning styles, including those often considered unlikely to learn to read who have Autism or Down syndrome.

Dads of Babies with Disabilities
Most fathers of kids with disabilities were civilians when their son or daughter was diagnosed. Many resources for parent support and information are offered through a motherīs perspective, with the needs and concerns of siblings and grandparents higher priorities than the husband and father.

Outdoor Games for Children
Children with special needs often learn new games at summer picnics, parties and on vacation visiting relatives just like their mainstream brothers and sisters. It is delightful when we see any child teaching their cousins, neighbors and classmates games that are cooperative as well as competitive.

Review - Parenting Children With Health Issues
Parenting Children With Health Issues: Essential Tools, Tips, and Tactics for Raising Kids With Chronic Illness, Medical Conditions, and Special Healthcare Needs by Foster W. Cline and Lisa Greene

Building good communication and healthy relationships between our sons and daughters is a high priority for parents who have one child with a developmental disability, chronic health condition or other special needs. Sibshops can naturally encourage sibling support and soothe sibling concerns.

Explaining a Cancer Diagnosis to Children
Explaining to a child that a parent, relative or close family friend has a serious or life threatening condition can be difficult for adults who may feel overwhelmed themselves. National and regional treatment centers may have resources for families to share with children, who have special needs.

DIR Floortime Model Techniques
One of the most enlightening developments in therapies for children with complex challenges, including autism spectrum disorders, has been the DIR (Developmental, Individual-Difference, Relationship-Based) model, especially one of its most significant elements, Floortime.

ADHD Medications and Cardiovascular Events
It is now recommended that all children who use ADHD medications schedule an ECG and cardiovascular check up; stirring alarm among parents whose children are more at risk for a cardiac event if they have an undiagnosed heart problem and use stimulant medications like ritalin, adderall, or concerta.

Behavior as a Medical Symptom
Most children show changes in behavior as symptoms of illness, injury or abuse before physical symptoms alert us to call in a doctor. Some children do not have the words to express their discomfort or pain, and many children believe that adults in charge are aware of everything without being told.
